What does config.log say?

Is gcc installed?  configure should not be running cpp directly.  That's
a last resort.  It should be running "gcc -E" instead.  config.log may
explain in more detail.

You might try:
  rpmverify cpp
  rpmverify gcc

And see if either report any modified files or give you a not installed
